The Collision is a young Pop/Rock band from Portsmouth, UK that formed in 2016. They released their debut EP Never Gone in November 2017 to rave reviews and have a strong local following that has allowed them to play headline sell out shows at The Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth and The Joiners in Southampton as well as festivals such as Common People and Victorious on the South Coast.
Originating as frontman Lewis Smith’s solo session band after he had to give up his aspirations of being a professional sportsman due to a life-threatening brain infection, the band quickly realised they worked better together than as a session band and began writing songs together and putting together their engaging and energetic live performance.
They were nominated for the Portsmouth News’ Guide Award for Best Band in 2017 and headed out on a 14 date UK Tour in September/October. They released Ghosts on the 1st February 2019.
